The Maiden And The Giant

TITLE: The Maiden And The Giant


AUTHOR: MaliceManaged

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine falling through a portal into Jötunheim and running into a stranger named Loki, who decides to provide shelter out of the need for company, that eventually turns into love.


NOTES/WARNINGS: Every time I think I know what I’m doing; Plot just smirks at me…


    It was a bit odd for Kat, travelling via the Bifrost again, though this time at least Frigga had cast a spell to protect her eyes from the brightness. The cold of Jötunheim was bracing to say the least, and she was more than a little grateful to Helblindi for having found and sent her enchanted medID necklace shortly after Loki’s appointment as ambassador. Speaking of whom; he was waiting for her on the platform that had been built to receive the Bifrost’s travellers, his expression brightening upon seeing her despite the circumstances that brought her. Kat grinned widely and made her way over to him quickly.

Twin Souls: the "psychic" bond

I’ve been asked a couple times about twin souls and telepathy.  I don’t know much more about this than I did the last time someone asked me about the topic, but I’ll share some thoughts.

Borrowing from my previous response, regarding “how” this is possible:

(T)wins are simultaneous expressions of one same soul resonance.  They’re already on the same wavelength because they are one soul, expressing in two different bodies.  It would be natural, in that regard, that they’d be frequently in synch with one another’s thoughts.  Sometimes you’ll say the same words.  Other times, you’ll be thinking about something that you aren’t even aware your twin is contemplating (in other words, a more subtle telepathic connection).  Or you’ll get flashes of your twin’s emotions, without trying to tune into these.

That said, your twin flame is not the only person with whom you can have a telepathic connection.  Some people might assume that a telepathic bond “means” you are twin souls, but the truth is that a lot of things that happen to twin souls and are considered “signs” of a twin soul bond are actually things that can happen with soulmates and others.  I imagine however that the difference with twin soul telepathy is that, simply, you’ll be tuning into each other’s thoughts and feelings more often than you would with anybody else.  Why?  Because you’re more closely connected to them.  They are an extension of yourself.  :)

Some examples of twin souls’ being in synch (which some might consider “psychic” or “telepathic”) below.  I’m going to draw the examples from my own life experience since I don’t know of any examples from others’ lives to offer you here at this stage.  Again, just remember, telepathic communication and synchronistic bonds are not experiences limited to twin soul connections!

  • One says something and the other recognizes their own words/thoughts/feelings in the phrasing.  Not just a vague, “Oh, wow, what a coincidence!” but a sense that, “THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I ALWAYS TRY TO TELL PEOPLE!  AND THESE ARE EXACTLY THE WORDS I USE!”

  • The twins make the same jokes in the same moment.

  • The twins make oddly parallel comments in the same moment, in entirely different contexts, without even being consciously aware of what is on one another’s minds.  (You can observe this with social media.)

  • Feeling your twin’s pain.

  • You look at someone who already is or who will be important to your twin, and your thoughts keep getting interrupted with thoughts of your twin, in relation to that person – only to find out later that your twin has a significant bond with them which reflects what you were thinking.  (In these cases, I’m not sure it’s telepathy so much as just the fact that you are a simultaneous incarnation of your twin, so your soul reacts similarly to significant connections.)

  • Alternatively, finding yourself mesmerized by people who are significant to your twin – years before you ever even meet your twin.  You may be picking up on your twin’s thoughts and feelings about them – or even picking up on your twin’s (or your own) energy in that person’s energy field – without even knowing that your twin exists.

  • People quoting your twin at significant moments, unknowingly.  For example, if your twin quotes a poem, and then you’re about to sleep with a new guy and the new guy randomly drops the same poem on you just before he gets undressed (bit of a heart-twisting mindfuck, but it’s all fun!), you can consider that a message.  Call it a message from the universe, a message from your twin, but it’s still a sign of your bond.  Did your twin quote the poem because someone was going to recite it for you in an intimate moment later down the road?  Or did your twin’s soul inspire that person to quote the same poem to remind you?  And does the “why” even matter?  ;)

  • You can hear your twin calling your name.  Even before you meet them.  (How do you know it was them you were hearing?  If they smell like the cologne that flooded your room when you heard a person calling your name years before you ever met.  Which you may be incredulous about the first time you notice it on them in the flesh, but getting over your own doubts is part of the fun!)

  • You may receive messages from your twin psychically.  These can be with words, or even just symbolic images and gestures that you’re seeing in your mind’s eye.  Occasionally, life may even give you “proof” that you did actually receive a message from you twin, rather than just some random idle daydream.  For instance, if your twin says, inside your mind, within a vision, “I gave you a map” – and then somebody hands you a map later that day – it’s probably not randomly un-related.  It’s probably a synchronistic reassurance that your twin’s soul did visit and did try to tell you that they “gave you a map.”  (How sweet of them!)

You can send your twin away, if you really want, in a moment when his/her spirit shows up to talk, if you don’t think you can handle the thought of engaging with them at that time.  Don’t worry; it won’t “insult” your twin’s higher self (the higher self has no ego to be insulted!), and you can’t “ruin” your bond by requesting space when you need it.  Your twin’s soul loves and respects you unconditionally and will never want to push, demand, make ultimatums, etc.

Your twin’s human self doesn’t even have to be trying to communicate with you; their soul is in touch with you at any time.  And so is yours, with theirs.

To close, another snippet from the old ask that I answered:

You can also attempt telepathic communication with anyone, intentionally.  Just be respectful about it by asking for the psychic protection of the party you intend to communicate with so that, if their soul doesn’t actually wish to interact with you, they will not be bothered.  You’d want to respect someone you loved anyway, right?  ;)

Hope that helps shed some light on things!

Wishing you peace and love!  <3

anonymous asked:

Be honest with me: did you think Zamasu was a "complex" DB character that was different from its predecessors? Cause tbh I think Zamasu is the worst villain in DBZ to DBS so far Goku Black was godlike though even though I thought he would be fan fic at first

Being honest? Absolutely no.

His motive was empty, flat, without a real context.

The idea of “ a mortal can not be more powerful than a god ” is was too vane. Although i like his design, quite basic yeah (i mean he’s a shi-jin after all they have to look alike).

My problem lies in the concept of Black.
You realize that we have this hype, this demand for the mystery character that surrounds its origin and simply drop it into a simple container.

Why not give it a context, a story of its own?

Taking advantage of the incongruous “hatred” towards Trunks, they could have taken advantage of that part.

What difference had it been since Black had been an independent character? That is, not a Zamasu-in-the-body-of-Gokú.

- why not put it as Trunks “sin” to travel in time? Since as Trunks traveled in time to save it was created a foreign identity identical to gokú since he -in theory- should not exist anymore?

- Why not take advantage of the time ring and go back in time and Take Son Gokú and raised himself as an evil deity with the full intention to make him to kill him in a poetical way?

- Why not  that reviving someone with the super dragon ball has as a side effect resurrecting the person that is the opposite of his first life, and why these ball are forbidden to use?

Look, idk man, just something better than just make him a Zamasu’s container 

zsaszmatazz  asked:

Importantly, in Victor's comic canons Nora is in a somewhat state of flux. In some she's dead but he hallucinates her, in some she's alive and frozen. In at least one comic (Which I don't know the name of but @vampirebillionaire knows I think) he builds the Lazarus Pit for someone, and in return is allowed to use it to restore his wife, which I think is a likely path his story will take now that Ra's has been introduced 1/2

And Victor’s killings were a pursuit to save the person he loved, not make them deliberately sad. Did he lie to Nora about the mice? Yes, but because he couldn’t stand the thought of losing her to this disease without giving it his all. Lumping the Penguin and Mr. Freeze into the same category of villainy isn’t really appropriate because there’s so much context behind their motivations.

Yes, very true. It’s interesting to look at their different approaches to love and how that might influence the story in the future, but there aren’t really any parallels there beyond them being willing to kill for love, and even that’s a very, very superficial parallel to make.

I keep thinking about how these surgeries are going to affect my self confidence once I’m all healed up. I feel very not cute lately, the pain and lack of mobility has made my standard level of hygiene something I’ve had to take a break from, and while it’s not a huge deal since nobody’s really seeing me anyway it still bums me out.

I made and put on a crop top for the first time the other day. My stomach was flat. It’s still incredibly swollen and scarred up, but it was flat. I look far from perfect but I nearly cried, because I felt beautiful.

I came to terms with my body as it was before the surgery. I didn’t feel ugly anymore when I went in for the lower body lift. However, it’s still something that was in the back of my mind whenever id get close to someone because it was something very jarring to see.

After the procedures, my body won’t be that anymore. I’m no longer going to be a living reflection of my heaviest weight, I’m no longer carrying the remnants of who I was at 500 pounds. If a girl takes me home and gets me naked, aside from the scars there will be no obvious signs that I was ever such a heavy weight. For the first real time I’ll get to be me, fully independent of who I was at this difficult time in my life.

It’s scary. I feel and look so different. I take up less space than I did before, nothing fits anymore. I didnt have context because I’ve never lived without the excess skin but it’s so weird to move now and realize how weighed down I felt with it.

I feel so far from everyone right now. I feel like it’s a necessary part of the recovery, because I need to come to terms with myself again before I’m ready to engage with other people. It’s an intimidating thought; it took me so long to feel comfortable in my body and now I sort of have to do it all over again.

I feel like this is all for the better, but I can’t help but be nervous. I’m waiting to see how this will affect my ability to let people in, how I talk to the opposite sex and how I carry myself now.

But in the meantime I’m going to heal, I’m going to become comfortable with myself again, and I’m going to feel great.

Oh and I’m going to go shopping.
